No worries; believe me I have questioned myself on it for years and only felt vindicated when I saw other reviews and/or spoke with people who saw the early shows.

I know as the tour progressed there was a change in Thompson's role; but night in Dallas (03-18-95) it was pretty strange having him playing barefoot in the dark as he did. I should note that page did have some great solos that night but they just seemed short and very guarded for what you would expected; and then you would hear this Porl Thompson just go off. Just didn't seem right; and I guess they figured that out as well. I have heard that the 98 tour was overall much stronger; I guess I need to find some tapes from that year.

I think it says a lot about page in that he stepped-it-up to be back at the top of his game, since he easily could have just coasted like more than a few end-up doing.

So I recall the material of the firm (unfortuntely) but what was the coverdale-page project like?
